“Thank you very much for the really inspiring, powerful work you did with our community this weekend. It was quite moving to me to have our community so well-heard and so accurately reflected in your synthesis. The workshop leaves us with a greater sense of what we have accomplished together and what we might accomplish in the future. I hope we have the chance to work with you again in the future and show you how far it has taken us!” – John Gower, Architect, resident Creekside Commons Co-Housing Community.

Meaghan’s passion for democratic processes of community renewal is infectious, and her energy inspiring. These sessions enabled us to overcome significant barriers, and to move forward in new directions.” – Sharon Karsten, Executive Director, Comox Valley Art Gallery
